First-ever triple camera iPhone; budget iPhone to get dual rear-camera

In a bid to match up to its competitors, Apple is working to offer its first-ever triple camera setup on its most-premium model, possibly, the successor to iPhone Xs Max.

Moreover, the successor to iPhone Xr and iPhone Xs would sport dual rear cameras.

Further, the new LCD iPhone may also get an upgrade, given iPhone Xr sports a single rear-camera.

Triple camera setup to offer improved Portrait photography

We expect the triple camera setup to comprise a main RGB sensor, a telephoto sensor, and the new Sony-made 3D ToF sensor.

With the new sensor, Apple can leverage the accurate 3D data to improve image processing and offer high-quality Portrait photography.

Moreover, the 3D sensor will also usher in new possibilities in the world of AR and VR gaming.

No more LCD iPhones in 2020

Contrast issues?

No more LCD iPhones in 2020

The report, further, says that Apple will drop the LCD option in 2020, switching to an OLED-only lineup in 2020. This is because OLED technology offers superior contrast and color reproduction.

However, for the current year, WSJ claims that an LCD iPhone is coming for sure given the "planned product has been in the product pipeline for months, and can't be altered easily".

Sony uses a technology called 'time of flight,' where the sensors emit low-energy laser pulses and measure the time they take to reflect back. With this information, they create 3D models.
